We had some really good times in the 80s but things didn’t come easy for us like kids from the 90s had it. We hear them whine about how low it took their internet to connect! We didn’t have internet at all! Here are 17 things that kids today couldn’t handle.
We had to walk everywhere in the 80s. Most of us didn’t even ride in a car until we caught one.
2. We learned how to be punctual.
Back in the 80s there was this thing called meeting people on time. That means that if your mates want to meet up and hang out at the arcade at 7pm you actually had to get yourself there at 7pm.
3. We didn’t have mobile phones.
We didn’t have the luxury of having text messages. We had to walk to our friend’s house if we wanted to ask them to play outside with us.
4. Asking someone out on a date.
Back then we had to call the house and we prayed to God that it wasn’t her dad that picked up the phone.
5. Flammable clothing.
In the 80s our parents wanted to make sure that we were tough. When we got home from school we would have to wear a ‘shell suit,’ this device taught us not to play with matches.
6. Patrick Swayze
Every boy wanted to be him and every girl wanted to date him.
